Flashing warm smiles and dazzling tiaras, Miss America 2015, Kira Kazantsev, and Miss New York State, Jillian Tapper, visited Thursday with young children and chatted with Child Life staff at Cohen Children’s Medical Center. The women spent an hour coloring and speaking with their newest fans, all of whom were clearly thrilled to be in their presence. After posing for pictures with the children, Miss Kazantsev said that her visits to children’s hospitals were highpoints of her year-long tenure. Since the Miss America Organization has partnered with Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) to raise funds and awareness for children’s hospitals throughout the country, each title holder becomes the goodwill ambassador for CMN. A major part of their mission is to speak on behalf of patients being treated at these facilities while raising awareness and sensitivity to their concerns.
